Interesting modified oil cooler arrangement on the second car, seems to be held in place by zip ties.........

A very makeshift arrangement considering how tidy the rest of the car looks, what could possibly go wrong 😦

These were a popular mod in the US a few years back. It just replaces the rubber 'S' pipe with an aluminium tube surrounded in fins acting as a very basic heat exchanger. I suspect the cable ties are there to pull it away from the SSI's.

The crankcase drain cover has also been replaced with something similar.

Was there a problem with the oil thermostat(s) at some stage??

I knew I had seen the design before but didn’t think that zip ties were quite appropriate in this instance.  For me it just raises questions about what else has been done in this way.......
